Winter Prep

Today was consumed with winter preparations. We got pelted with a foot of snow last week and single digit temps at night. More or less what you look at as a “wake-up call”. Today was beautiful though, 70 deg and sunny, winds calm. So, we spent the day working on a few things that are much more pleasant to accomplish in nice weather.

I went to Home Depot and got a new rubber strip and some weatherstripping for the garage door. Cut-Snip-Nail and now the north wind should howl on by instead of coming in the garage. Oil changes were needed on both Jeeps. I did Ronda’s and then taught Kristina how to do her own. Kristina has been a willing student for Auto Mechanics 101. Her Jeep needed new rear brakes last month. We changed out the shoes and had the drums turned. Saved her a few $$’s in the process.

Lastly, Ronda’s Jeep got a much needed bath and interior wipe down. It was showing the effects of mountain trips and the sand on the roads after the snowstorm. (R says) It was another gorgeous Colorado day! Made more so with the fellowship of the ones we love. The work accomplished was good too.
